Aaron Enskat wanted a hand-bound book. We discussed variations on traditional formats – including pivoting pages at 90° angles to indicate a progression through a labyrinth – and settled on the standard, with flourishes. The book’s specs:
I printed all front cover type and imagery in varnish to establish and reflect the book’s themes of elusiveness and disappearance, and wove labyrinthine graphical elements throughout the text. I also edited the poems heavily, cleaning line breaks, grammar, establishing punctuation consistency, and helping Aaron choose the sequence.
